SENATE PASSES MEASURES TO IMPROVE LIVES OF VETERANS AND HONORS THEIR SERVICE WITH ANNUAL “HALL OF FAME” CELEBRATION

        The New York State Senate today passed seven measures dedicated to
improving the lives of veterans in honor of their service to the state and
country. The Senate also celebrated the achievements of veterans from
across the state during the Senate’s annual Veterans’ Hall of Fame
induction ceremony.

      Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan and Coalition Co-Leader said,
“We are all thankful for the courage and sacrifices of New York’s veterans,
and our Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame is a wonderful opportunity to honor
the heroes from our communities who have fought to defend our freedoms.
Along with the bills passed today, the Senate is committed to showing our
veterans that we care and want them to succeed, and we are truly proud to
support them.”

      Senate Independent Conference Leader and Coalition Co-Leader Jeffrey
D. Klein said, “Every year, we in the Senate pay tribute to our veterans
and honor the great sacrifices they have made for our country. We owe a
great debt of gratitude to those who bravely served in our military. They
are the true protectors of our democracy, our freedom, and our great
nation. Our annual Veterans’ Hall of Fame ceremony and the legislation we
passed today is just one small way to say thank you.”

      The New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame was created to honor and recognize outstanding veterans from the Empire State who have distinguished themselves both in military and civilian life. Information
